For country singer Jaclyn North, the reality of rejection makes the reward that much sweeter. In 2010, the then-18-yearold found herself face-toface with the toughest man in music, Simon Cowell, when she auditioned for “American Idol.” While she did make it to Hollywood, she was eliminated in the finalist round, but that didn’t stop her from winning the 2010 Texaco Country Showdown, performing on the car racing circuit at Daytona and Mobile (she also will perform in Talladega on May 4) and opening her own business with her family, Popcornopoly. Her star has only gotten brighter as she has continued to write and perform, and is preparing to release her debut album. But before she takes the stage tonight at The Smoking Moose, read about the Texas native’s journey to the top, how she perks up for popcorn, and what she really thinks of Simon.

PBS brings back modern ‘Sherlock’ for a second season By Tish Wells McClatchy Newspapers

WASHINGTON — Coming back beginning Sunday to a PBS station near you is a new season of the BBC’s “Sherlock” on “Masterpiece Mystery!” The popular modern reinterpretation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “Sherlock Holmes” mystery stories drew 4.6 million views per episode for season one on PBS. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as Dr. Watson, a veteran of the current war in Afghanistan. Cumberbatch says about

Holmes, “I think when you’re reinventing an icon for the 21st century you’ve got to be quite sure of your purpose, and that you’re doing it to a high standard, and something good will hopefully be well received; but nothing could have predicted the level that we took on from the first episode.” The new season, which has already appeared in the United Kingdom last January, offers three episodes — “A Scandal in Belgravia,” “The Hounds of Baskerville” and “The Reichenbach Fall.” The titles are plays on the titles of the classic Sherlock Homes stories “A Scandal in

Bohemia”; “The Hounds of the Baskervilles,” a novel; and “The Final Problem” — better known as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s attempt to kill off his literary creation by having Holmes and his criminal opponent Professor Moriarty fall into the Reichenbach Falls in Switzerland. The first “Sherlock” episode “A Scandal in Belgravia” introduces the best-known woman in the Holmes literary canon, the adventuress Irene Adler (Lara Pulver). “Sherlock” creator Steven Moffat points out that “Moriarty (is) the famous one but there’re some famous ones in Doyle that have scarcely been touched.” He

It was almost an alive and water-cooler moment, and it created a bit of a sensation for those three weeks and beyond,” says Cumberbatch. “It really did catch a cross-generational sort of moment in conversation and was a bit of a cultural landmark. For that to happen in one country, I’d love to have that happen here (in the United States) as well.”

Underwood learns from imperfect moments By Caitlin R. King Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — “American Idol” did more than launch Carrie Underwood’s career — it helped shape the picture-perfect image she has today. In interviews and public appearances, she never has a hair out of place and always says the right things. She only recently decided it was safe to join Twitter, and if there’s ever a controversial tweet from her account, assume it got hacked. Her carefully crafted persona doesn’t come from “American Idol” media training, but rather from what she feels were cringeworthy moments during her winning run on the show in 2005 that stereotyped her as a naive “country girl.” “I’m glad I can present a polished version of myself when it counts. When I was on ‘Idol,’ I said some dumb stuff, and learned what that could do, and that stuff lives on,” said the Oklahoma native. “It seemed like every single solitary stupid thing I said was aired and featured and replayed over and over and over again.” After that, the 29-year-old made a conscious effort to portray herself in public as what she calls a “somewhat intelligent person” who graduated from college. Yet when recording her fourth album, “Blown Away,” out Tuesday, Underwood allowed herself to be unguarded, and sometimes downright silly. “When you go in to write, you have to be willing to sound stupid,” said Underwood during a recent interview at the Grand Ole Opry, of which she is a member. “Before you have a chance to think about something, you blurt it out and it doesn’t make any sense, and everybody gets a good laugh out of it. You can’t be afraid to sound completely dumb when you go to write.” She’s giving herself permission to be a little less concerned about her image these days as well. It has taken her multiplati-

Country singer and ‘American Idol’ winner Carrie Underwood is shown in Nashville, Tenn., April 19. Underwood’s latest release, ‘Blown Away,’ hit stores this week. num, Grammy-winning success, as well as the confidence of cowriting six of her 14 No. 1 country singles, for her to get comfortable with letting her personality shine through in more than just her music. “Blown Away” represents Underwood’s continued growth as an artist. She co-wrote eight of the album’s 14 tracks, a far cry from the one tune she penned on her debut album. The disc is also a diverse collection, both musically and thematically. The title track pulsates with a dance beat over a storyline describing a girl who heads to a storm shelter, hoping a tornado will destroy her home and her drunk, abusive dad asleep upstairs. “One Way Ticket” sways with a reggae groove. “Cupid’s Got A Shotgun,” featuring Brad Paisley on guitar, introduces fans to her redneck side. And “Wine After Whiskey” is a heartbreaking break-up ballad that has a classic feel.

Grammy-winning songwriter Josh Kear, known for hits like Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” and Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now,” wrote four songs on “Blown Away.” Three were penned with Underwood, including the foreboding “Two Black Cadillacs” about a wife and a mistress who conspire to get even with the man who betrayed them both. Kear, who had never written with Underwood before this record, was thrilled with her as a collaborator. The day they wrote the quirky “Cupid’s Got A Shotgun,” Kear had suggested the title at the beginning of the session, and they had spent two to three hours working on another tune before getting stuck. “Suddenly, she starts stomping her feet and clapping her hands and singing essentially what is now the melody for ‘Cupid’s Got A Shotgun.’ She had somehow, while we were in the process of writing this other

song, been mulling it over in her brain and came back to that title,” he said. Kear jumped right in, and they wrote the song in about 15 minutes. “It was kind of goofy, and a lot of people don’t get to see that loose, goofy side of her, and I think that is one of the reasons she was excited to get those songs is she gets to bring a side of herself that hasn’t really always been out there,” he said. “Hopefully now people will imagine that as part of who she is.” Country fans have seen Underwood’s comedic side as co-host of the Country Music Association Awards with Paisley for the past four years. Executive producer Robert Deaton had worked with Underwood and saw another side of her behind the scenes, which is why he initially tapped her for the job. “The more you know her, the more you like her,” he said. “That outgoing personality, just funny,

timing is perfect, witty. She’s also incredibly intelligent and smart as well.” Deaton believes the CMA Awards gig has been very important to balancing out her career. During writing sessions for the show, he said Underwood is quick to make a joke even funnier or throw out an idea that is spot on. He says her quick-witted delivery on stage is “very much who she is.” “Her participation is so deep on many levels (of the show.) On one hand, she can do comedy. On the other hand, she can also bring class and beauty to the broadcast,” he said. “Then she can go out and do an unbelievable performance, so it’s multilayered of what she brings to the table.” While Underwood has brought more of her personality into play with “Blown Away,” she is careful to point out its songs — many of which have a dark, edgier tone — are not a reflection of her personal life. “When I think of my career and when I think of ‘Carrie Underwood,’ that has kind of taken on a life of its own. I feel like when I’m on stage, when I’m writing songs, singing songs, I’m in the studio, I’m shooting videos, I kind of get to become this character, and I can make that whatever I want to make that. I honestly in a lot of ways don’t want to sing about my real life, because that’s private,” she said. “I’m pretty private about my personal life and my husband and our life together, and I think it’s so wonderful I can separate the two. I get to be an actress. I get to play a character. I get to have fun and tell stories.” And she’s apparently not a bad actress in real life. She jokes that she’s “got everyone fooled” if they think she’s flawless. “My husband (NHL player Mike Fisher) calls me ‘the queen of awkward moments.’ If something can be said to make an awkward moment even worse, I’m going to say it,” she said.

B.o.B offers array of musical styles By Jonathan Landrum Jr. Associated Press

B.o.B, “Strange Clouds” (Grand Hustle/Atlantic Records) B.o.B is a rapper who has totally gone pop, but that’s completely OK because it suits him. The Atlanta-based artist fused elements of hip-hop, R&B and rock on his 2010 debut album, “The Adventures of Bobby Ray,” which produced the charttopping “Nothin’ On You,” featuring Bruno Mars, and the top 10 hit “Airplanes” with Hayley Williams. The rapper-singer-producer sticks with the same formula on his sophomore album, “Strange Clouds,” while tapping pop’s most successful hitmakers, including Taylor Swift, Lil Wayne, T.I., Chris Brown and Nicki Minaj, for collaborations. He gets production help from Ryan Tedder and Dr. Luke, but he showcases his own production skills on the album’s opening track, “Bombs Away,” featuring a voiceover from Morgan Freeman. It’s filled with operatic vocals and a melody that sounds like it could be used in a horror show. On “So Hard to Breathe,” B.o.B starts off the song on the acoustic guitar before he heads into rap-crooner mode. He’s at his best on that particular track along with “Where Are You (B.o.B vs. Bobby Ray),”

Iron Man, portrayed by Robert Downey Jr., left, and Captain America, portrayed by Chris Evans, are shown in a scene from ‘The Avengers.’

Fun ‘Avengers’ is almost too much of a good thing By Roger Moore

(Robert Downey Jr.) quips. But it works, because Joss “You’re all about style, aren’t Whedon (“Buffy the Vampire you?” the red-white-and-blue Slayer”) brought his A-game to goody-two-shoes Captain fires “The Avengers.” It works because back. he never loses sight of the fragile In an ensemble piece, humanity of the characters, even Downey’s brilliant touch with in their special effects brawls. It the throwaway putdown is showworks because somebody finally cased to its best effect. He calls McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Thor “Point Break” (a surferPatrick Swayze hair joke) and “Shakespeare in the Park,” and asks “Doth your mother know you weareth her drapes?” The earnest Evans gives just enough gravitas to the Captain, who understands how their special gifts are “a terrible privilege.” Loki turns a couple of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents — the bowand-arrow-wielding Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Professor Selvig (Stellan Skarsgard) — into his flunkies, and sets about creating a means for an army of aliens to show up and enslave humanity. Hiddleston grows into the part that seemed like a weak link in “Thor,” and makes the most of this guy’s megalomania and bad-guy bravado. “You are MADE to be ruled. Kneel before me,” he orders one and all. “It is your natural state.” The real fun here is in the fractious nature of the superhero team — Iron Man sniping at and brawling with Thor, Iron Man’s quarrels with Captain America,

the “issues” between the assassins Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye, and the “Serenity Now” ethos that Bruce Banner embraces lest “The Other Guy” (The Hulk) break out and make a mess of things. Ruffalo gives Banner/ Hulk a wonderful, almost passive “Nobody really should mess with me” pose, and he can trade wisecracks with the best of them. “That guy’s brain’s a bag full’a cats,” he says of Loki. “You can smell crazy on him.” Whedon manages to give a staggering number of characters their “moments,” from Clark Gregg, the long-suffering agent whose thankless job it is to ride herd on the superheroes, to Gwyneth Paltrow’s sexy paramour/ assistant to Tony Stark, Pepper Potts. She’s all cut-off jeans and come-hither come-ons in their scenes together. As you might expect from a movie with this many characters and that many zingers, “Avengers” is entirely too long and entirely

too chatty. The 3-D adds nothing to it, and we lose the urgency every time we lose track of the menace and the villain. But Whedon has managed a feat akin to last summer’s “Thor,” finding the fun in what should be, by any rights, an exhausted genre. “Avengers” isn’t deep (yes, we really should all work together) and it doesn’t reinvent the comicbook movie. But it is fun, and if it’s an indicator of the season of cinema to follow, this summer is going to be epic.

In addition to boasting of this trademark topic, Anne’s works contain a mixture of religious fervor and unmitigated violence that was unprecedented in her time, often following her depiction of a husband’s wrathful tirade with the wife’s elegant and poetic pleas to God. Though Anne has often been regarded as the “quiet” sister or, more shockingly, the least-talented Brontë, she more than matches her siblings’ portrayals of domestic life in terms of impeccable accuracy and unquestionable conviction. From a 19th century novel of sentiment, one could ask for nothing more, and from a Brontë, one would expect nothing less. Lance Hicks is an English major at Jacksonville State University.

Both “Dragnet” actor Jack Webb, offered the role of Dean Wormer, and the University of Missouri, asked to be the stand-in for Faber College, declined to participate after reading the raunchy script. Shooting “Animal House” was all business. Even actor John Belushi was on his best behavior, not yet a star given to self-destruction. The movie’s incredible success — by Simmons’ accounting it cost about $3 million and brought in $140 million — all but guaranteed a sequel. It never happened, arguably because the ideas were lame and uninspired, not that Sim-

Therein lay a weakness of “Fat, Drunk, & Stupid.” The author approaches his subject like the movie’s producer instead of a writer eager to analyze closely the strengths and weaknesses of the movie, its lore and its legacy. At times the narrative is perfunctory, and the interviews with cast members and others are not always enlightening. Simmons’ idea for the magazine’s follow-up movie was closer to the spirit of its debut film: “National Lampoon’s Jaws 3, People 0.” He says he heard that the project was torpedoed by a certain director who didn’t like the idea of his hit film being satirized. The spirit of Dean Wormer lives on.

CampFire iPad case will catch attention The addition of Apple’s stores for Mac and iOS devices has proven that good software doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg. You can find some great programs that take the place of software like Chris Photoshop for Pittman a fraction of the price. iSpy This week we’ll take a look at some deep applications that won’t break the bank. We’ll also look at one of the more physically intriguing iPad cases on the market. CampFire by X-Doria; $59.95 What’s the result of combining the latest in technological tablets and the great outdoors? The weirdest iPad case yet. The CampFire by X-Doria takes the cake for oddest-looking case I’ve ever had the pleasure of testing. A thin metal casing is attached to a cushion that resembles a huge inflated lifeboat. The cushion can be manipulated to sit the iPad in just about any position desired. A drawstring is used to tighten the cushion. The overall size of the item is much larger than other cases on the market. You’ll need a little bit of room to sit everything up. I’m not the biggest fan of the casing part of this particular product. It’s very simple and slender, but leaves no position for an Apple Smart Cover. The back cushion can be reversed to cover the screen when it’s not in use, but that is not enough protection. It does, however, make for a great way to transport your tablet around. The CampFire definitely scores points on the originality scale. People will definitely take notice if you were to use this out in public. Ultimately, I fail to see the big use of the case other than for

You can drag and drop the photo you wish to edit, or import from a camera or storage tool. Next, you’ll decide how you wish to edit the photo. You can change the picture to appear in grayscale, sepia or bluetone. Then, you can color over the photo to highlight a particular element or object.Pretty much any element of the photo can be manipulated, including the brightness, contrast, blur and saturation. The diameter, softness and opacity of your brush can be sized to the desired spot as well. Your photos can be shared with the click of a button. Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr and email are all supported ways to show others your magnificent photo-editing skills. The coolest part of the application is the ability to order a canvas print of your photo. You can select 8” x 10”, 16” x 20” and 20” x 24” canvas sizes. Canvaspop is currently offering a free 8” x 10” canvas photo to those who purchase the app. The company says it takes around 710 business days to get your print. I find that to be quite great when compared to most alternatives in the same realm. Color Splash Studio is an awesome artists tool for those who wish to begin editing their own photos. I would recommend checking the application out if only for the free canvas print. After all, how cool is it to have your own edited photo hanging on the wall?

Avengers, Spidey, Batman lead huge summer movie lineup By David Germain Associated Press

Disney via Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — As superhero summers go, this one is truly super. Amid one of the most-promising box-office seasons Hollywood has ever served up, three movies stand above the rest. The first weekend in May brings “The Avengers,” the ensemble adventure teaming Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man with such fellow Marvel Comics heroes as Thor, Captain America and the Incredible Hulk. “The Amazing Spider-Man” follows over the Fourth of July as Marvel’s webslinger gets a fresh origin story, with Andrew Garfield taking over as teenturned-superhero Peter Parker. Finally, in late July, there’s “The Dark Knight Rises,” with Christian Bale returning as DC Comics’ masked vigilante in the finale of director Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy. These three are the gold standard for fans: “The Dark Knight,” Tobey Maguire’s three “SpiderMan” flicks and Downey’s two “Iron Man” movies are the six topgrossing superhero adventures ever. Add in solid receipts for solo turns of “Avengers” costars Chris Hemsworth in “Thor” and Chris Evans in “Captain America: The First Avenger” — plus the lure of a new incarnation of the Incredible Hulk by Mark Ruffalo in “Aveng-

ers” — and summer’s superhero meter is off the charts. “’The Avengers’ is literally one of the first books I followed regularly. ... Some of the work that was done in there was really groundbreaking and really epic,” said “The Avengers” writer-director Joss Whedon (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”). “It’s great fun to take characters that you are so invested in, because you grew up with them, and get to put words in their mouths and figure out what they’re going to be doing with their lives for a while. Of course, there’s plenty to fill in the gaps between superhero sagas. Other action tales include “Men in Black 3,” with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones; Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron’s fairy-tale makeover “Snow White and the Huntsman”; Ridley Scott’s return to sci-fi with “Prometheus”; “Avengers” co-star Jeremy Renner’s “The Bourne Legacy”; Colin Farrell’s remake “Total Recall”; and the board game adaptation “Battleship.” Cartoon makers offer up the Scottish adventure “Brave,” the latest from the animation virtuosos at Pixar, while talkinganimal franchises return with “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” and “Ice Age: Continental Drift.” The comedy and music front brings Adam Sandler’s fatherhood story “That’s My Boy”; the all-star song fest “Rock of Ages”; Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill’s suburban romp “Neighborhood Watch”; Sacha Baron Cohen’s tyrant tale “The Dictator”; and Whitney Houston’s final film, “Sparkle.” And what would summer be without vampires? Johnny Depp turns blood-sucker as he reunites with director Tim Burton for “Dark Shadows,” a big-screen take on the gothic soap opera. “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” has the great emancipator taking down the undead. Like director Whedon with “The Avengers,” “Amazing Spider-Man” star Garfield practically has Peter Parker in his DNA. Garfield has been a huge Spider-Man fan since age 4. “I know the character really well. It’s part of me already. It’s like I’ve been preparing for the role for 24 years,” said Garfield, who hints that destiny is at work in this version as orphan boy Peter’s search for his parents puts him on a path with the mutant spider that endows him with superpowers. Directed by Marc Webb and co-starring Emma Stone as romantic interest Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as the villainous Lizard, “Amazing Spider-Man” aims to walk the line between gravity and exuberance, Garfield said. “Marc Webb has approached this with a real eye for authenticity, emotional authenticity, a kind of grounded-

ness and grittiness. It feels a bit darker to me,” Garfield said. “Also, it’s really important that Spidey has fun and is witty. The mask’s a very powerful thing for anyone who wears it. It gives you leave to do anything you want, and I think in the hands of a teenager, he’ll just run riot. I hope we’ve managed to have some of that.” “The Avengers” has superhero puppetmaster Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) rounding up Downey’s Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow, Evans’ Captain America, Hemsworth’s Thor, Ruffalo’s Hulk and Renner’s Hawkeye to take on Thor’s evil brother (Tom Hiddleston), who plots to unleash alien marauders on Earth. Unlike “Avengers” and “Amazing Spider-Man,” “Dark Knight Rises” will not be playing in 3-D. Director Nolan just isn’t a fan. Nolan does like shooting for the huge-screen IMAX format, so fans can count on a visual spectacle in those theaters. “On 3-D, I don’t know if that was ever even a debate,” said Gary Oldman, who returns as Batman’s police commissioner ally, Jim Gordon. “It’s IMAX. That’s as big and bold as it gets, so there’s plenty of that.” Anne Hathaway signs on as Catwoman, while Nolan’s “Inception” co-stars Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Tom Hardy join returning Batman cast members Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine. Nolan and his cast have kept details secret, but the film could spell a dark end for Bale’s Dark Knight: Hardy plays the villain Bane, the brawny brute who broke Batman’s back in the comic books. Hardy has a tough act to follow. The late Heath Ledger won an Academy Award as Batman’s last foe, the Joker, in “The Dark Knight.” “I find it interesting that he picked Bane as a villain, and he was not tempted to use the Riddler or the Penguin, the more obvious choices,” Oldman said. “It suits the story better. It’s a great read, it’s a great piece. And there we are. There’s the end of it.” Please see movies ❙ Page 16 Warner Bros. via Associated Press

Pop culture Q&A

‘NCIS’ romances, game show, more By Rich Heldenfels Akron Beacon Journal

Q: My wife and I and many of our neighbors watch “NCIS” and not one of us has ever seen a word about the marital status of Cote de Pablo or Pauley Perrette. Help! A: De Pablo, who plays Ziva on the long-running CBS series, has long been in a relationship with actor Diego Serrano. She told Prevention magazine a couple of years ago that they balance each other. “My partner’s idea of fun is to dress up, get in the car, pump the music, go clubbing. I could not be further away from that. I love being at home, having friends over,” she said. Perrette, who plays Abby, was married to musician Coyote Shivers, leading to a nightmare that is ongoing. They split in 2004 and Perrette later accused Shivers of stalking and harassing her — claims also made against Shivers by another ex-wife, Bebe Buell, according to a FoxNews. com report in 2006. While Shivers has denied the charges and posted his own accusations against Perrette, she has had a restraining order against Shivers since their breakup. In early April, according to TMZ, he was charged with violating the order — while on probation for sending Perrette’s lawyer harassing emails. Aren’t you just a little sorry that you asked? But Perrette may yet find happiness. In December, she announced her engagement to a former British marine, Thomas Arklie. But she has reportedly said they will not marry until California overturns its law banning gay marriage; Perrette has called the law unjust. Q: Could you tell me about the program that has six people in chairs and a commentator? The six people decide the answer to a question and all agree on whether to go for, I think, a million dollars. I just happened to catch it and it looked like an interesting program. A: You most likely saw “Million Dollar Mind Game,” which aired on ABC on Sunday afternoons last fall. Based on a successful Russian game show that has been modified for other countries, six people who knew each other tackled a series of logic-

‘NCIS’ actress Cote de Pablo has long been in a relationship with actor Diego Serrano. I could really tell you is that the show is in a lineup of other British sitcoms. Do I have the title right, and more importantly, is it available for purchase? A: You saw a comedy called “Outnumbered,” about a couple with three young children. According to the BBC, it “captures the turbulent chaos of family life in a way not seen before, at all its most deliciously chaotic.” I do not know of an authorized DVD release in a U.S.-compatible format. Amazon.com has six episodes for sale as streaming Instant Video; Hulu.com has the same six based questions, headed toward a available from its Hulu Plus pretotal prize of a million bucks. After each correct answer, the team had to mium service. By the way, Fusion is an addidecide unanimously whether to keep tional digital channel from Western going or take the money won so far. While the show was well received by Reserve Public Media available over-the-air and from some cable the people who saw it, ABC has not companies. According to Western announced additional episodes. Reserve, it “focuses on regionally Q: I’ve seen several episodes produced programming from both of a show on a channel called Western Reserve Public Media and Fusion (which I am pretty sure is independent producers; arts and a PBS affiliate). The show is much performance programming from in the vein of “Modern Family,” national sources; Ohio Statehouse with a British family instead of an floor activities coverage from Ohio American one. I think it’s called “Outsourced” but when I’ve looked Government channel and other public affairs programs; and British on Netflix and elsewhere, the only comedies and other BBC Worldwide result I get is the NBC show “Outprograms not carried on Western sourced” from a few years ago, Reserve PBS.” set in India.
